Meet The Team
We are a team of vision scientists, optometrists, engineers, and programmers. Our mission is to bring recent technological advances in virtual reality and eye-tracking to optometrists, vision therapists, and other clinicians, enabling them to provide improved clinical outcomes and engaging therapeutic experiences to patients with vision disorders.
Mitchell Scheiman O.D., Ph.D., FCOVD, FAAO
Chief Medical Officer
Mitch is a true thought leader in optometry. He has coordinated multiple large randomized clinical trials, authored several textbooks, and published hundreds of articles in the field. His decades of experience in both clinical practice and research are critical to OMT’s mission of developing the next generation of optometric tools.
Tara L. Alvarez Ph.D., FAAO, FAIMBE
Chief Scientific Officer
Tara is a biomedical engineer and vision scientist who incubated OMT’s core technology in her lab at NJIT. Tara’s numerous publications in the field of neural engineering laid the foundation for OMT to automate the analysis of eye movements.
